Love Krista & Rob
For Rob and I, there was no better investment to our wedding day than to hire Nomo Akisawa as our professional photographer. She is magic!
Her style captures light so gently and with an indisputable ease of elegance. Her creative eye found each detail of our looks that we loved so much, and her editing showcased these details with class. She ensured we had ample pictures of our sweet baby girl to treasure, while candidly catching the sneak peak moments of love between Rob and I. She captured our guests looking their finest while remaining unobtrusive to the flow of our day and ongoing conversations. In essence, Nomo felt like a guest, a friend, celebrating our happiest day and kindly recording the moments for us through her lens.
Nomo’s love for her art and true excitement at our wedding celebration was evident, and when we sat down to look at the pictures for the first time, we were amazed at how each shot reflected another well-captured moment of our day. We are ever so grateful. Thank you, Nomo.
Love Caroline & David
We were referred by a friend of mine on Facebook to use Nomo for our wedding photographer. We looked at her website and was very impressed by her photography skills and really liked her style.
Nomo was very quick at getting back to us after we inquired about her services and shortly after some emails back and forth, we met Nomo at our home. She didn't hesitate to drive all the way from Maple Ridge to Richmond just to meet us. Nomo is very easy to talk to, friendly, easy going, and down to earth.
She made us feel comfortable under the camera, especially during our engagement photo shoot. It was raining that day unfortunately, but using umbrellas, she still agreed and continued to take our photos and they turned out amazing!
David and I were at times, camera shy, or didn't know what to do, but Nomo guided us very naturally to tell us where to stand and how to pose, place our hands, heads, and relax. She put in extra time just to get the location and shots that we wanted to have as well.
On our wedding day, Nomo and her 2nd shooter dedicated a hot sunny day to shoot our wedding ceremony and formals, and took many beautiful photos that we will cherish for life. We greatly appreciate the extra time Nomo put in during our Reception as well.
We definitely recommend Nomo for other couples to use for their engagement and wedding photos. She has talent, drive, dedication and the potential to become a famous photographer if she hasn't already!
Love Brandi & Josh
Nomo is amazing, not only as a photographer (obviously!) but as a person as well. The first time we met her was the day we got our engagement photos done. It was our first photo shoot of any type so we didn't know what to expect and if it would be awkward or not. She made us feel incredibly comfortable and gave such good direction. It was a breeze! She made everything so easy. When we got our photos back we were blown away! So were all our family and friends. We decided right away we had to have her for our Jamaica wedding, and we are so happy she could be apart of the best day of our lives. She did the best job, everyone had so much fun and once again, we were blown away by the photos when we got them (which she got back to us so quick!). We definitely recommend her to everyone! You won't regret it. I know in the future we will definitely book with her for more shoots.
